Crème de la Dress de la Crème

I found the most incredible wedding dress. It’s handcrafted, designed by a local artisan, and made of marshmallows.  Isn’t it awesome?

Kidding!

Well, not about the awesome part, or the marshmallows: this work of art, featured in the window of downtown Roanoke dress shop La De Da over the holidays, was pretty darn awesome. Created by owner Carole Hughes with the assistance of one of her employees, Robyn Gross, it made for a dramatic, even show-stopping, display.

So, what will I be wearing? Lots of folks have asked whether or not I have a dress yet. The answer is…

Stay tuned for next week’s post, to hear a funny story about my dress. 🙂
